Another Top 10 Hot Songs For Your Workout
Sometimes an extra push of motivation mid-workout is just what it takes to own your set or send that treadmill crying instead of the other way around. Music may soothe the soul, but in your workout, we’re all about it moving your soul as well. After all- when it comes to the power of musical motivation and workouts, it’s science.
Without further adieu, we present our latest- a mix of old, new and in-between:
If you need a quick pick-me-up, this one will get you going. This grammy-winning song isn’t racking up BPM records but it will get you pumped for your workout. Kanye says, “That, that don’t kill me can only make me stronger”- a line that couldn’t be any more true when hitting your workout.
From the album Wild Ones, this song reached number three on Billboard top 100 in 2011. The song kicks off on a slow vibe but picks up the pace to quickly keep you “feeling good” throughout your workout.
Remember the Name by Fort Minor (explicit)
Another track that begins a little more slowly, “Remember My Name” quickly picks up the pace. This song has become a sports anthem in the NBA since it appeared as the theme song for the 2006 and 2007 NBA Playoffs and for the 2008 Draft. It is explicit, but there’s a clean version on itunes.
You know a song is meant for the gym when its video is SET in the gym. The beat hits hard and keeps a constant flow to get you through some of your toughest sets. “Let’s Go” was released in the UK and quickly rose to number two in 2012.
Throwin’ it way back to the 80’s with this Rocky anthem. Although 30 years old, “Eye of the Tiger” remains a classic motivator and a favorite among sports and fitness buffs. If you feel a little eclectic, this one can be great for your playlist. And with a constant beat to keep you going for the whole four minutes, by the time this song is over you’re that much further into your workout.
Lose Yourself by Eminem (explicit)
Who doesn’t love a little Eminem to get pumped? Lose Yourself has earned its place as a motivational classic and is perfect for warmup, cardio AND resistance. Released for the movie 8 Mile way back in 2002, “Lose yourself” won awards for “best rap song,” “best original song,” and even won a few Grammy’s.
21 Pilots is is a genre-bending band with hits that can fit any musical taste. Heavydirtysoul kicks up the speed after a mysterious intro, with intermittent breakdowns that are nice for catching your breath.
The lyrics say it all: “I don’t get tired.” What else do you need? This song isn’t as well known, but did hit the Billboard Top 100 list.
Is there irony to pacing your metabolic conditioning to a band called “Chainsmokers”? Maybe, but when it comes down to the business of something paced and deliberate like lunges, this is a great track. Released in November of 2016, “Setting Fire” is could be a new leg day anthem.
For the number one hottest song to workout to, Stay by Alessia Cara and Zedd is killing it on iTunes. Get on your headphones on, turn the world off and let that sweat flow.
